Darin Corbiere - Nature

Born and raised in Wikwemikong First Nation, Manitoulin Island, James Darin Corbiere belongs to the Bear Clan of the Odawa tribe of the Anishinaabe nation. His Anishinaabe name is Waabi Makoohns which loosely translates to mean “Little White Bear.” Darin is a Native Studies and Anishnaabe language teacher at White Pines C. & V. S. in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. He is an artist, working with pieces of white ash, letting the wood grain inspire his eyes and guide his hand. He is also a writer, recording the traditional stories told to him by his grandmother in graphic novel form. It is one of those stories, Giiwedanong, that Darin shares in the videos here.
